UFC 271 medical suspensions: Marcelo Rojo, Maxim Grishin draw indefinite timeouts

Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation (TDLR) recently handed down its list of post-fight medical suspensions — minus the corresponding injuries — for those fighters competing at the UFC 271 pay-per-view (PPV) event last Sat. night (Feb. 12, 2022) at Toyota Center in Houston.

Event headliners Israel Adesanya and Robert Whittaker are permitted back inside the cage by month’s end following their five-round affair. Same for Tai Tuivasa and Jared Cannonier; however, Derrick Lewis and Derek Brunson will be forced to take a little extra time off to recover from their knockout losses.
